“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” ~ William Shakespeare
The rolling fields of the Bluegrass dip and curve until their waters collect into small streams, growing bigger at each confluence. En route to the Kentucky River, they carve deep hollows with wide, shallow movement. Craig’s Creek in Woodford County is one such place. The centuries-old rock wall, camouflaged in deep green moss, appears for just a few feet before the lichen swallows it whole again. It stands as a reminder of a bygone era, when Craig’s Creek was one of the most traveled paths in Kentucky. My little Happiness Project gals met at Sandy Davis’ house in “the holler” on Craig’s Creek. Annie Bassoni and I wasted no time exploring the gentle waterfalls. They don’t call this God’s Country for nothing. It was a special day.
